Because of Bethlehem:
God Has A Face –the Face Of Worship
Mike Teel, Pastor
Focal Passage: John 1:1-2, 14 and Luke 2:8-15
WE ARE MADE FOR WORSHIP
We are made for worship. We all worship something or someone, because God made us for worship.
EXAMPLES OF WORSHIP IN THE CHRISTMAS STORY
The MAGI brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh: Matthew 2:1-2, 11
The SHEPHERDS brought their gift of time and joyful belief giving the gift of company and celebration: Luke 2:15-20
The ANGELS gave the unusual gift of worship: Luke 2:13-14
WAYS TO WORSHIP GOD
1. WORSHIP HIM VERBALLY
Psalm 47:1b (NLT) and Psalm 66:1 (NLT)
2. WORSHIP IN COMMUNITY
Luke 2:13 (NKJV). . . And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God...
3. WORSHIP DEMONSTRABLY
Let your body express what your heart is feeling.
Psalm 141:2 and Psalm 63:3-4
LIVE IT OUT
> Would you think about your expression of worship this morning?
> Perhaps you would consider this morning, trusting Christ as your Lord and Savior.
